The Reds should take Burnley apart on Saturday...
<div id=":qn"><div id=":q1"><div dir="ltr"><h2>Burnley v Liverpool</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/burnley-fc-vs-liverpool-fc-3838796/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, August 31, at Turf Moor</strong></a></p><p>Liverpool have made a blistering start to the 2019/20 campaign and they should swat Burnley aside without too much trouble on Saturday. They began their campaign with a 4-1 demolition job on Norwich, and then recovered well from midweek Super Cup exploits to clinch a 2-1 win away at Southampton. Jurgen Klopp’s men beat Arsenal 3-1 at the weekend and they are now the only team with a 100% record in the Premier League. They will be desperate to maintain it against Burnley and it is hard to see Sean Dyche’s side stopping them.</p><p>The Clarets beat Southampton 3-0 on the opening weekend, before falling to a 2-1 defeat away at Arsenal. They were then unlucky to draw 1-1 away at Molineux on Monday, as Wolves scored an equaliser seven minutes into stoppage time. They have scored five goals in three games, and Ashley Barnes has been on target in each game. They had just 34% of possession against Wolves, but still managed to hurt them on the break. That will give them optimism ahead of Saturday’s game, but Liverpool are a cut above Wolves.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Liverpool number one Alisson went down with a muscle injury in their season opener and he is unlikely to return in time for this match. Adrian has looked shaky while deputising for him, and Liverpool are yet to keep a clean sheet this season, so it is probably best to avoid win to nil bets on them right now. Naby Keita also remains injured and Nathaniel Clyne is a long term absentee. Joel Matip and Joe Gomez are fighting for a starting berth alongside Virgil Van Dijk in defence, while the feared attacking triumvirate of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané will relish the opportunity to take on Burnley.</p><p>Steven Defour continues to miss out for Burnley, while Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady are doubts. Dyche was expected to rest most of his first team stars for the midweek EFL Cup game against Sunderland in order to preserve their fitness for this clash. Barnes will be the first name on the team sheet, with Chris Wood supporting him in attack. Ben Mee and James Tarkowski form a solid defensive partnership, but they will have their work cut out against Firmino.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Liverpool beat Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor and 4-2 at Anfield last season, extending their winning run against the Clarets to three games. They are vastly superior to Burnley and they know they cannot afford to drop points in their title battle with defending champions Man City, so they will be highly motivated to take all three points. They are priced at 1.33 (1/3) to win it and that looks good for an acca. Liverpool -1.25 Asian handicap looks good at 1.72 (29/40) with Bet365, or you could try Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals at 10/11 (1.91). Liverpool to win and both teams to score also looks tempting with Adrian in goal, and that is priced at 2/1 (3.0). The even money on Salah scoring at any time also looks great.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Liverpool -1.25 Asian handicap at 1.72 with Bet365</a></strong></p></div></div></div>
